KYLIE’S ROOM | Podcasting: No Country for Old Men

An old man drives angrily back home from the supermarket, shouting in disagreement with what seems like no one. He’s shouting a podcast playing over the in-car stereo system.

Podcasts are for everyone — not just angry old men in their cars — but literally anyone.
